VLCD - VERY LOW CALORIE DIET
Wow! First of all, I want to thank you all for the responses I got from my first blog post. When I started this blog I did not expect that people will even be slightly interested in what I had to say but boy was I wrong.
In my last post, I promised to do a write up on the VLCD (VERY LOW CALORIE DIET) I am presently undergoing called the Cambridge Diet Plan. permit me to digress a little,here is a picture of me today
FULL BODY PICTURE.I AM TOTALLY OUT THERE NOW SCARY!!!!!!
CAMBRIDGE DIET PLAN.
This is a very low calorie diet which consists of shakes and soups. It is basically a liquid diet where the individual takes shakes consisting of 450-520 calories daily for a minimum of 1 week and a maximum of 12 weeks at a time.
I must say that this diet is not for the faint hearted. Like I said in my first post, I am a foodie and for me to give up food in its whole entirety then you know it had gotten Bad real bad Michael Jackson.
Now many people who I have talked to about my diet are more worried about how I plan to sustain the weight when I stop my VLCD.
The Cambridge diet has six steps with the last step being maintenance where you are placed on a strict 1500 calorie meal plan coupled with exercise. Needless to say you will be have to be under the watchful eyes of a Cambridge certified consultant.
Before you start the diet, you must meet up with a registered consultant who will access you in all aspects, and pronounce you medically fit before you can start the diet.
I have being on the Cambridge diet for about 10 days now and as at the last time I weighed myself, I had lost a total of 8kg. To be honest when I look in the mirror I don’t see much of a difference even if all my clothes are dropping from my waist and I am beginning to fit into clothes that I couldn’t fit into before halleluyah.LOL.
A colleague came up to me today to ask me what I am eating that she has noticed that I am losing weight and my sister who hadn’t seen me in a while saw me yesterday and said yes I notice you have lost weight, the very little joys.
To get full and detailed information about the Cambridge weight loss plan, you can visit HERE and contact me for any further information.
Finally before I go, I want to tell you a little story. I saw this video of a lady who lost 575 pounds over six years. What I took out of her story was her patience, her focus was her goal and she never let anything deter her from that and most importantly God.
I have done so many weight loss programs on my own many a time, I lose weight but I quickly gain it back. The day before I started my Cambridge diet I knelt down and prayed to God and asked him to hold my hand and see me through this journey because I knew there will be days when I want to give up. I asked for the fighting spirit to take it one step at a time and to be able to remember to go back to him when the journey gets tough. There are days when I cry yes tears because I want to EAT but so far I haven’t given in and I know I WONT so help me God.
The Lord has never left me since, anytime I find myself craving those things I love: yes I still love them there is no fronting here it’s all a process and that is why we are here. I pray I ask him to open my eyes to see where I was and show me that I have come a long way and he always does.
Have a blessed day people.
